A gradual eastward movement of

Much Sensational Evidence I Promised
in Probate Court When Hoaxing I
Had on Application for Letters of
Administration for Estate of Ella
Sutherland. Noti ce of a sensational contest over
the will of the late Ella Southerland
was filed in the probate court today by
the attorneys for Leeds Greene of She
boygan, Wis., a son of the deceased,
who was cut of? with $1 in the will. J.
R. Lewis, superintendent of the Rice
detective agency, was the sole devisee
of the estate, valued at $6,400, and his
application for letters of administra
tion for himself will be heard before
Judge G. Harvey next Monday.
The contestant alleges that the in
strument filed in the probate court is
not the last will and testament of the
deceased that if it is, it was obtained
by fraud and undue influence, and that
it was illegally executed.
Story of Decedent.

It is said that the woman who lived
with the deceased will testify that Mrs.
Sutherland said, about two months
prior to her death, that she felt she
should make a will or some disposition
of her property. The will filed by Lew
is after Mrs. Sutherland's demise is
dated in the fall of 1904.
The case has attracted considerable
attention in Sheboygan and eminent
counsel in that town and St. J^aul

the disinherited boy in his attempt to

is a considerably larger estate than is

lightful rendition of the "House of
Dreams" last evening in the People's
church. St. Paul. The, soloists were Sig-1
nor Campanari and Mrs. Katherine Gor
don French. Campanari was in splendid
voice and gave his numbers with a Are
and spirit that won him many recalls.
Mrs. French delighted the audience
with her interpretation of the bright, vi
vacious sections and in the deeper num
ber, "The Blessed Damozel," sung with
the ladies' chorus. The oratorio num
bers were'more than satisfactory and the
club, under the direction of George
Fairclough, sang the weird, dreamy mu
sic smoothly and sympathetically. The
oratorio, "The House of Dreams," was
only recently composed, and has been
given but one other presentation.
